November 3, 2020 General Election Results

  • Unofficial results will be posted at the Secretary of State's website beginning after the close of polls at 8:00 P.M. on election night. 
  • Results will be posted and updated by precinct as they transmit polling place results back to the county.
  • These results will include results from all polling place ballots, as well as all absentee ballots counted through Election Day.
  • Results posted on election night will not be final as a court order requires that absentee ballots sent on or before Election Day that arrive through November 10 (and meet acceptance criteria) must also be counted. 
  • Additional results updates will be posted by 6:00 P.M. each weekday through November 10 to reflect the additional absentee ballots that are counted.
  • Final results will be made official by the Anoka County Canvassing Board on Friday, November 13.

Election Results

Election results for all contests and questions voted upon in Anoka County are reported through the State Election Reporting System administered by the Secretary of State. A complete listing of results for all elections held in the State appears on that website as they are reported. Statistics regarding voter turnout are also posted to that website in the days following the election. Vote totals from in-person voters on Election Day are counted in individual precincts throughout Anoka County. Vote totals from ballots submitted by absentee voters are counted centrally at the Anoka County Elections Office. After the close of polls at 8:00 p.m., precinct election results are communicated to our office, combined with results from absentee ballots and then posted to the State Election Reporting System. State Law prohibits release of precinct results until all absentee ballots for that precinct have been counted, reported and combined with precinct totals. Results obtained on election night are unofficial and may be adjusted in the days following the election. Election results become official when approved by the Canvassing Board following each election.
